Our activities do provide the ground level exposure within the society, it empowers members with legal knowledge and provides them with the opportunity to make an actual positive impact on society.

About the Moot
Mooting is one of the most essential skills for any law professional. Moots Courts or Mock Trials are usually based on hypothetical cases, involving emerging or unsettled areas of law. Law students, who participate in these activities, are given the opportunity to develop their research, legal writing, and oral advocacy skills in a mock courtroom setting. Additionally, moot court presentation includes professional legal etiquettes in the students which equip them to adapt to courtroom practices.
The 1st LMLRO National Moot Court Competition, 2021 has been introduced to students pursuing the law course during these times, to try and enhance the research and advocacy skills among the coming generation of the legal fraternity. This moot will enrich the students with their research as well as mooting skill and our endeavour would be to carry forward the chain of law learning process even during this time of the pandemic.
